Parked on the grass verge by The Hill at the start of the path NNE of pillar. If coming from Presteigne then you avoid the gates on the road when you park here. Followed the path to the stile then skirted round field edge to the trig. Adjacent field full of bullocks who looked a bit miffed at not being able to chase me!

Walked up from Warden Road along bridle way to field with unfenced grazing, trig in hedge line other side of hedge with electric fence. Pillar in good condition with metal plug. Lovely position views good but misty to-day.

Walked from Presteigne via Warden Road and took bridleway and short ascent to the pillar. Returned through the wood and along Slough Road as the light was fading. Very good all round views.

Got a good brunch in Presteigne then an enjoyable ride up a tiny lane. A triple jump of electric fence, wire fence, electric fence, en route but easy to step over as long as you have good balance

Park in recess along road - all gates open. Nip through gorse hedge, up slope and over two(!) electric fences - not on - the electricity. On summit along fence line. Good view south to Hergest Ridge. Plenty of fresh cow pats.

Lots of gates to open and shut on the gated road providing access. Several cars up here searching for a wedding do!

An easy to find but out of the way trig point. Access was from a gated road with open cattle that came running up and looking round my car when I parked up. They then followed me all the way to the top of the hill till I went into the other field.

Easiest of the day to finish buried car in one of the few verge areas, walked the 250m up to the trig, then ran back as the rain set in hard for the first time all day.

In amongst the cows a short way off Warden Lane, a gated road out of Presteigne. Usual East Rads scenery, lots of half mown fields.The Harleys are the local landed gentry in these parts and good sponsors of orienteering - Cheers!. They gave their name to that street in London.
